Living with dementia or caring for somebody who has dementia can be very challenging for the people involved. It is important that you are aware of the support available from the NHS and your local council that can help you and your loved ones.

These services can include providing carers to help with washing and dressing, laundry resources, food and drink deliveries, home adaptations and access to day centres.

Various charities such as Dementia UK, Alzheimer’s Society and Age UK can also provide support that could be useful to a person with dementia or their carer.

Although this level of support may not be needed at the present time, it can be very helpful to be aware of what is available and plan for any possible future circumstances.
